While we feel that any day is a wonderful day for cake, we adore the concept of dedicating a whole day to one of history’s most stunning desserts. Chocolate Cake Day is on January 27th, so we’ve selected 5 of the most delicious recipes to commemorate the occasion!
Whether you want something sweet and extravagant or something more basic, we’ve got something for everyone to enjoy on this special day.
1. Chocolate Pound Cake
This is the recipe you make with your fluted tube pan if you’re searching for a reason to do so. We’ve added a chocolate touch to the basic pound cake recipe. With the addition of the simple chocolate glaze, you’ve created a dessert that’s suitable for every day of the week.
2. Dark Chocolate Orange Cake
In this delectable tiered cake, another amazing taste combination takes center stage. This classic is made with moist chocolate cake and light, zesty orange. To double down on your chocolaty delight, top it all with the fast and simple ganache.
3. Flourless Chocolate Ganache Cake
In this flourless cake, you won’t miss a thing. A rich chocolate taste paired with a silky smooth handmade ganache? Please, yes! The richly delectable fudge-like flavor makes a statement, and it’s a “yum!” statement.
4. The Ultimate Birthday Cake
This is opulent. One of the most recognized taste combinations of all time is peanut butter and chocolate, and this one is filled with it. The dark, rich cake, with its slightly crunchy layer of meringue, is delicious on its own, but the peanut butter cream cheese frosting elevates it to new heights. For the ultimate birthday cake, top it up with meringues, peanuts, and sweets.
5. Truffle-Topped Chocolate Cake
This is a dreamy one. It’s a thick and creamy chocolate cake with handcrafted truffles and a cocoa ganache. An decadent dessert that doesn’t require a special occasion to prepare. Make the truffles a day ahead of time so they have time to set.
